Pretoria - The National Prosecuting Authority and the SA Police Service confirmed they have held a meeting to sort out a spat that started after a summons was issued on deputy national director of public prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba.

Eyewitness News reported on Tuesday that the police’s Major General Norman Taioe and the NPA’s Jan Ferreira of the NPA met and agreed on how to take matters further.

Last week, NPA boss Mxolisi Nxasana told reporters that Jiba had refused to accept a summons for her to appear in court on charges of fraud and perjury, reported News24.

Police officials told EWN last week that the summons shows the prosecuting authority is driving a case against Jiba.

But Nxasana said he found it strange that the police would accuse the authority of “pushing a personal agenda against [Jiba]”.

He said the suggestion of an agenda was ludicrous.

The NPA boss says he's been advised that the investigation against Jiba "is not going anywhere".

Police spokesperson Solomon Makgale told the broadcaster the meeting was satisfactory and agreements had been reached between the two organisations.
